Skinny Strawberry Mango Smoothie


Every morning I make a smoothie to start the day. I love that they are easy to make, give me the energy I need for the day and I can throw them in a to go cup if I need to. I have tried a lot of combinations of smoothies, but this one is hands down my favorite. It is has all the flavor but not the crazy amount of calories of a smoothie from a smoothie chain. My kids beg for bites of this one and are always sad if I make another flavor. 


You will need: 
  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt (5.3 OZ cup)
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
  • Pineapple, Mango and Strawberries
There are a couple of ways to make this smoothie. The first involves using fresh fruit and also a handful of ice. The second way is the way I prefer to make my smoothies, so they aren't watered down at all. 

Slice a pineapple and mango in to chunks. Hull strawberries. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze over night. Throw 3-4 chunks of pineapple, 3-4 chunks of mango and 2-3 strawberries in your smoothie and blend. If you want to make it really easy I believe most stores sell frozen fruit with this combination, but I love freezing my own. 



Do you drink a smoothie in the morning?

It's been awhile since I drank (or made) a smoothie. But I prefer to make them your way as well, with frozen fruit rather than ice. This combination sounds yummy!

This looks yummy and healthy and like a great way to use up fruit before it spoils.

Sounds delish, but I wonder about the sugar content? It may be fine, just over all curious. I love the idea of freezing the fruit!

You had me at Mango. I ate so much mangoes when I was younger and I still can't get enough of them. I love smoothies and try and have one daily. My favorite is definitely strawberry banana though.

Smoothies are such a great way to get lots of nutrients in! I'm a fan of using frozen fruit too - just makes them taste so much better. :)
